Covi Yan

Hong Kong Back To Competition

Local competitive golf action recommenced on May 18 with the HKGA Spring Men’s and Ladies’ Tournaments at the Hong Kong Golf Club. Unfortunately due to thunderstorms over Fanling, the Men’s Tournament was cut short and eventually had to be cancelled. 

In the Ladies Tournament, Covi Yan triumphed in the Gross Stableford with 33 points, while Nammy Dun won the Nett Stableford with 41 points.
